    Default Condensation problem

    Hi. Recently i have had a problem with condensation inside my Vectra. It is on the front and back windows only. I did have a problem a while back with condensation only on the back window and it turned out to be a hole in the exhaust but that has been replaced. Any ideas ?

    I have not changed it. I have had the car over 2 years. Is this an easy job. Where would the blocked hole be ?

    Dry all the water/residue around the drain under the scuttle panel, give it a thorough clean around and in the large rubber drain thingy, then change the pollen filter. When your closing the scuttle panel over make sure all the surfaces are well sealed with no gaps around the edges and bobs yours uncle it should be much better after that.

    I'd check your passenger footwell mate, if its damp or wet you have had water ingress from pollen filter, I had condensation in my old 2002 vec-c, caused by blocked scuttle drain and water filling up my heater blower from coming in thru pollen filter opening.
    After I cleaned it out I cut the rubber funnel in half, it is a O at the top but it tapers down about 2 inches long, I just cut the bottom half off.
